We have recently returned from skiing in Val D'Isere and stayed in a hotel for the first time, previous experience had been in catered chalets. L'Avancher made a very pleasant change. Well placed for shopping and bus route to the pistes and near enough to stagger home from the many bars of Val. The staff were very friendly and helpful... More

First time staying in L'Avancher and it ticked every box..! On booking, Isobel on reception couldn't have been more helpful. She supplied the quiet, relaxing room I so needed. Sorted ski pass's, restaurant reservations, sorted ski hire queries. All with a smile and great efficiency. My room was a good size, immaculately clean, quiet & with a lovely balcony with... More

We had dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The hotel and restaurant were well decorated and furnished. We received a very warm and sincere welcome and the most attentive service I can recall in a long time. All of the meals my party ordered were well presented and perfectly cooked. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

Delivered as advertised. Satisfied customer. Location is excellent - close to buses, restaurants, supermarket and ski lifts. Room and beds comfortable, not large but good by French standards. Friendly and very helpful staff.
